and possibly melted throughout today is a very interesting day at the tepco headquarters in central tokyo thousands of people have gathered saw me in support of nuclear power believe it or not and thousands more who are walking the streets in organized protests carrying signs and banners and shouting out slogans through loudspeakers against nuclear power saying that there needs to be alternative sources of energy of all this a question for the tepco headquarters the company was possible for the daiichi power plant and one of the reasons why this is important is that within the past week new information has come out saying that tepco at the initial phases of the disaster lied about the amount of radiation that was coming in and tried to downplay the situation saying that the radiation levels were not as bad that there could possibly be a meltdown then of course this past week it was revealed that they cut those numbers in half in fact i have not done the government is not providing proper
11:03 pm
information and people young and old want to know the truth of the course of the situation with the radioactive emissions has not changed in the last three months nothing has changed since the very beginning the communities devastated the people have no homes there is no place to walk everything is destroyed the school also coming to life is that the nuclear fuel not only melted down but possibly melted through the inner containment vessels and into the outer skin or still linings which is a much much more serious problem one thing that people are worried about is the amount of radioactive water that is in the area this is the beginning of the rainy season and people are worried that with more rain that radioactive water will then still out in flooding the area has been terminations also people are very angry about the children their schools which are contaminated is. well right now kids are exposed to higher levels of radiation than ever have been in the past and they have to stay inside in sealed buildings you've got to build to play outside it's also very hot and impossible because it's people like that every operation has one

person from the prime minister sharon has actually already said he was subject to centuries of is he a she is a cardinals this is a with even decision which neuron children to judge themselves to these higher levels of radiation of course our goal is an archie cruise to go into the fukushima zone and we're going to go in with some cleanup crews and see how that process is going right now but from tokyo john thomas artsy. sean bernie and independent nuclear energy consultant based in the u.k. says recovery from the current nuclear disaster at the atomic but is going to be a long and painful. the explosions that took place in the first day they released a large amount radioactivity perhaps ninety percent of it and didn't look injured in the pacific because of the prevailing winds the problem is that as a result of these explosions and as a result of the core melt in these reactors contaminated water the water that was
11:05 pm
fooled by used by tickling to cool the reactors has not built up on site we know that maybe five to ten thousand tons has been released into the pacific but there's an additional one hundred thousand tons of highly contaminated water sitting inside the reactor buildings inside the turbine halls depending on the tiger radiation can be seen in a relatively short period of time simply because i really cancers in children but more long term. is over several decades. several u.s. congressmen have gotten a letter apparently written by libyan leader moammar gadhafi it thank the statesman for being critical of president obama for u.s. involvement in nato military intervention in libya the authenticity of the letter hasn't been confirmed meanwhile alliance forces keep stepping up air strikes and you're libya's capital are logically wounding a senior khadafi aide earlier the u.s. and its close allies britain and france called on other alliance nations to commit

themselves more deeply to the task but germany spain and turkey main targets of the appeal referred to opt for a more peaceful solutions with turkey's prime minister offering the libyan leader a safe exit according to u.s. radio host and author thing going to lead him in the person most interested in ending the conflict could offer himself. male one of conflict in the first place he may be added he responded to it when washington and nato the libya and gadhafi respond because of course he wants it is the one to cease fire he doesn't want any of this the war on the west. he wants it is losers he wants an entire conflict washington and nato absolutely do not want to have to if you're in the bennett observers on the ground including former u.s. congresswoman green curry presidential candidates it's been a good. case for. rebel forces and nato but

army casualties killings mass casualties mess destruction as you race medio this mysterious out of c.n.n. you. begin image loose here hiding the truth. about r.t. dot com we want to know how you think libya's deadlock can be resolved so far nearly two thirds think nato should withdraw or sixteen percent say things should continue as they are until the conflict eventually ends eleven percent think only ground forces will finally resolve the situation the same about feel the u.n. should send in peacekeepers and split the country into. stay with us here on archy's still ahead our teaser resident hits the streets of the big apple for opinion on the recent cyber attacks on sony and master card. it was speaking they are heroes because they console. everything they are they are from all of the
11:08 pm
security systems. bad as well as a few less positive takes on the hackers in just a few minutes plus we'll take you want to journey through a city like any other. there are a lot of different legends and myths around this area and in the past the locals try to avoid going to dance as they say anyone who dares to get in will never get a life rush or close up graves the city of the dead to bring you reports from the mysterious and mountain is south of the press. but first it's an annual and or an annual gathering of political and financial elite and it's a bill of secrecy is enforced by an army of security guards these years build a bird conference is being held in switzerland and taxpayers are footing the bill even as europe is tightening its belt and forcing through tough austerity measures attendees range from royalty to top c.e.o.'s and it's under a now traditional media blackout r.t.s. or i'm it reports from sun or it's. as this building work meeting has progressed
11:09 pm
here in summer it's in switzerland more and more processors have turned out to say they don't want it to happen here they're camping out outside the hotel showing up in numbers really from all over the world there are swiss people obviously but i will say many germans austrians swedes and even americans who have come all the way here either to report on what's going on all just to protest here with their feet on the ground in person some of the people behind me say that they have been subject to great harassment by the swiss police threats of deportation things of that nature they have varying degrees of suspicion about the builder berg group some say that they are scheming behind closed doors to introduce a new world order but some just want to point out that in many countries it's illegal for elected officials to meet in secret in these kinds of surroundings let's hear what some of the protesters told me the swedish and these the politicians are according to swedish law committing diplomatic treason and
11:10 pm
if they were sentenced if they were judged and sentenced they would be in prison for ten years to life according to the school people think it's a conspiracy theory but in fact is just the ignorance of the people we've known for a long time pretty much what's been going on there. and it's definitely not good for humanity not good for the planet and you know i don't want my kid growing up to be a slave in the new world order to be honest this is not the only protest a about kilometer away down in the town of summer it's the young swiss socialists have turned out again to process in fact they dismiss the people behind me they say a lot of the these people are essentially a crackpot conspiracy theorists but what they're here to say is this meeting goes against everything that they perceive to be switzerland that neutrality the transparency that they want to promote here and switch. interest isn't evident in
11:11 pm
the dealings of the build normally crisis. to policy or to build a better conference into global leaders we see more democracy. this year's meeting in switzerland does look like a different affair from last year since it just in spain there are more protesters here there's also more media attention a lot of alternative media journalists are turned up to try to report on what's going on although r.t. is the only international news station that's represented here so we are seeing more protests we are seeing better organized protests than we saw last year better organized media facilities so it does look like if this momentum can be carried on the building comfortable meeting in secret like this for very much longer right here my colleague bill dodd spoke with. tony gosling who thinks that we would of the conferences are acceptable to the far reaching decisions made by. it is pretty
11:12 pm
obvious to me that this is the complete most convenient way to distract attention to say a sort of mix up this very important meeting with other silly kind of spirits conspiracy theories and i can tell you my blood is boiling at the lack of coverage in the western world if you had all of the leaders of the main banks in the west all of these royalty all the chief executives as well as people like george osborne with his treasury team there i mean we're talking about an incredibly important meeting even if one of these groups were to meet up together it would be on our headlines but since they're all in the same place you would expect more coverage i mean even from the gaza incident down there so it's great to ask you but isn't that the choice of the group they want a media blackout so they can discuss openly and honestly amongst themselves without being reported erroneously or whatever they don't want the media to be there is that right. well they don't want the media that's because i think what they're what they're up to in there is absolutely is no good we have to look at what nato is up
11:13 pm
to this is very important to understand the very close links between ninety and the builder burks it was set up around about the same time as nato just after the second world war by the cia and the council on foreign relations who'd been talking about this during and after world war two and the idea that this organization is not important not important enough for us to know about in this country is just ridiculous around the western world because what's happening here is we are spending our years voting in local and general elections and this arrogant bunch are choosing our party leaders so it almost doesn't matter which way we vote we still find this secret artificial consensus which is cooked up at these build a big meetings spreads out around the world and it's not just me saying that this is will happen who actually went to one of these meetings when he was still the editor of the observer newspaper here in britain. for more on the stories we're covering can always check out our website r.t. dot com well yes but it's a click away right now working and russia's president joins the country's prime

11:18 pm
or belittle this week let's talk about that. they are heroes because they can solve . everything they are they are. security systems so what if a robber a bank robber is technically. proficient enough to get into a bank does that make him a hero to. the police department goes into certain things and the government goes into certain things probably i would put that on the same level as i would someone who goes in and hacks into a site they're not supposed to be on their harvest which are five times of it illogical. because we're just doing illegal activities. just to make. really to open the lens to things that should be i don't have that much of a problem is that it's so subjective though why are we in trusting thieves essentially making that kind of a judgment call. these that's
